I had a few of his records in H. School. Some fun stuff.

I think John is one of the finest lyricists ever...sorta like Towns Van Zandt but with a sense of humor. Kristofferson and Croce's got nothing on him.

I heard of him first through the " Lost dogs and mixed blessings" album. "Ain't hurtin nobody" and "Same thing happened to me" are still great songs. Bought me a couple of albums. Good stuff.

Great stuff!!! The preamble stories are as much fun as the tunes themselves

"Hello in There" is one of those tunes that just tugs on the old heartstrings. I play that one sometimes and it makes my wife get all choked up.

It takes a special kind of songwriter that can both crack you up or make you cry at the same show

God yes.
John Prine.
Some mighty solid finger pickin' for a 2-finger style... great song writing, great feel, and delivery, and a natural ability to play with other musicians.
And showcased some great players on stage and on his recordings.
I'll probably always love his first three LPs the most-- Dave Bromberg, Steve Goodman, Dave Prine, Leo LeBlanc, Grady Martin....
Amazing stuff there, on so many levels.
I got a lotta love for the Sound of Loneliness....
